Ecolodge Puntondo plays a direct role in carrying out tourism sustainability through hard work and working harmoniously in the fields of cultivation, marine biota and the culture of the local community. Our services and infrastructures are inspired by a sustainable and unique environment.
Our lodges are inspired by the surrounding environment. The rooms are simple, but comfortable and charming. The open plan of the bungalow allows for natural air flow, and gets direct sunlight.
Eco-Food: fresh, healthy dan local
Our kitchens use fresh ingredients and really not using synthetic additives in foods, such as preservatives, MSG (Monosodium glutamate), or artificial dyes. The food ingredients that we use are fresh products from our Organic Agriculture Center which is also a purchase from local farmers, thereby reducing the environmental costs of transporting the product distribution.
We do a separation between organic waste and non-organic waste. We process organic waste into compost, which then we use for PPLH Puntondo gardens and agriculture. Non-organic waste, such as PET bottles, plastic or even paper, are used as souvenirs for sale to Ecolodge Puntondo guests. Ecolodge Puntondo is also caring for as much environmental impact as possible.
Windmill as Power Plants
The large amount of wind in this village when dry season and the rainy season requires PPLH to create windmills as a power plant to provide electricity for PPLH and Ecolodge.
The process of converting salt water into fresh water by heating water with solar energy. In the evaporation process, water from evaporation is used for drinking water and cooking needs. Together, even if only with small and measurable steps, we are able to improve the ecology in Sulawesi.
Wastewater from laundry, bathrooms and trenches is filtered through particulate filters before being channeled into special sealed pools, filled with sand and gravel. Then planted with types of plants that require water and nutrients, so it will be easily absorbs any remaining nitrate and phosphate. As a result, there are no pollutants that seep into the river, where now-filtered wastewater will eventually flow.
Together, step-by-step, we are fostering an awareness and understanding of ecology and sustainable practices in Sulawesi, and the whole of Indonesia.
